    Boonie 46min is a longie; but I did find it fairly accurate in that IMHO the U.S. Leaders did fail in managing this war.

    Also it's a shame that our current efforts (against terrorist) have reflected this same mis-management judgment. I.E. not holding on to won territory and protecting the locals. OUR U.S. POLICIES AND TACTICS REALLY SUCK SOME TIMES!

      This doc rehashes the same old clichés about Vietnam imo, but has some interesting bits nonetheless, like rare images of Soviet advisors with Northvietnamese SAM crews and an interview of General Westmoreland.

      And Kenneth Branagh whos doing the narration pronounces president Diem's name correctly (Ziem instead of Diem)
